Overview/Itinerary

Pack your bags this is your opportunity with Treks and Trails, India organizing the Trek to Mount Everest Base camp. This program has been designed to fulfill the demands of the people who want to have a glimpse of the world’s highest peak. Apart from breathtaking scenery, travelers to the region can experience unique Sherpa culture by visiting monasteries and museums along the way. Days filled with walking for the sheer pleasure of it, past colorful prayer wheels and across swing bridges straight out of an Indiana Jones movie. While evenings rewarded with hot food and conversation with like-minded people around the dining-room fire, the heady mix of natural beauty, fascinating culture and a personal sense of achievement, as well as warm Nepalese hospitality, makes the Everest Base Camp trek one of the world’s most unforgettable trek. It’s Journey of a lifetime.The Gokyo Ri Everest Base Camp Trek is better than Everest Base Camp because the views from Gokyo Ri trail are much better than the views from the path of Everest Base Camp. And another reason is that it is less crowded in Gokyo Ri Trek than the Everest Base Camp.
